I'm so glad the rest of us are above hatred and intolerance of outsiders.
Intolerance of the intolerant is not the same thing. But thanks for pulling out the same chesnut the anti-gay crowd has been using for years.
The paradox of tolerance, I can't add anything to it that Popper didn't state much better in the 40's.
I will continue to not tolerate the nazi bs mainly because I just don't like 'unfunny nazi sockpuppet accounts' or IRL nazi/white supremacist morons and really, the internet and the world have plenty of hugboxes already for that sort of subhuman ranting and shit-throwing, so he's welcome to take my advice any time and fuck off back to /pol/ or stormfront where he'll be welcomed with open arms by his fellow intellectual midgets.
We don't need to fight hate with hate, we should rise above hate. Homer isn't implying we tolerate racist crap here, but rather we shouldn't react with petty actions like this. Plus you're just giving the dude the attention he/she craves.
Cena is correct, as usual! Well, mostly. I would argue that we DO need to tolerate intolerance; after all, ---that is the whole point of tolerance!!!--- "Tolerance" means putting up with people you dislike, simply because putting up with people you dislike is the Right Thing To Do. Something which you "tolerate" is something which you hate, but have nevertheless learned to live with, because you understand that people Other than you have worth. Everyone wants to live their lives in a different way, and you yourself have neither moral nor legal jurisdiction over their hobbies, their bodies, or their minds. If you don't HATE a thing, you cannot "tolerate" it - no, without hate, we would say you "approve" of the thing-in-question, "accept" it, even "embrace" it. For example, I "tolerate" my friend Cena's bizarre interest in Steven Universe (ee-YUCK!), but I cannot say I "tolerate" his interest in MLP. Huh? Why? Because I like MLP! I don't NEED to tolerate his interest in colorful cartoon ponies, because I already fully accept him, and embrace his Broniness as my own.
We don't need to "accept" Jimmybob. We don't need to "embrace" his ideology. But we do need to be "tolerant" of it, a moral duty which imposes a number of obligations upon us - including being polite to him, giving what he says a fair hearing no matter how odious out of our comfort zone, and YES, above all, allowing him to speak.
The alternative is: we could admit that we now feel the need for tolerance has run it's course, and the only thing that remains is for we, the winners of the Culture War, to kill off any remaining unbelievers. This is also a possibility, but if it's one that people are willing to accept, then we might as well be honest about it, and stop trying to use ridiculous doublespeak slogans like "We Cannot Tolerate Intolerance" - slogans meant to cling to shreds of our now long-dead liberalism, and obfuscate what is, in reality, merely the resurgence of our own violent tribal hatreds.
This website has never tolerated assholes like preywinder and bouncers and homophobes. They deserve to be mocked. It is fun to mock them.
Just as jimmy*.* will eventually get bored with being the town reject, so too will we get bored with mocking him incessantly. I have been ignoring him for most of his short and uneventful life on this website and I'll end up ignoring him again, but for now, I am vetoing the long-winded call for "tolerance" on the fucking portal of evil television network.
Where did your balls go.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Evilhomer and Cena have the right idea here imo.
If you are mature and tolerant of this sort of idiot (ie. gracefully ignore their shit, or respond in a reasoned manner)
They will either get bored and leave, or else actually start to engage, to their betterment.
Meaningless and fruitless ideological confrontation seems to be exactly what they crave, and by providing it you just encourage them to continue.
Ignoring trolls doesn't make them stop, it does make everyone else stop though, ultimately.
glad to see we are now posting decade old novelties to discuss troll accounts that arent interesting.
One day this site will just be me 5 starring videos of transistor organs that I also submitted.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Old Zircon was here for countless aeons before any other members arrived, posting and 5 starring videos of transistor organs.
So it was, and so it shall be in the end.
When/if you get to/are legal age I am still waiting on that black-owned breeding porn, girls.
Hey now, they had a bad enough childhood, and still managed to escape their racist parents and recant the bullshit they were never really responsible for in the first place.
No need to hate those who rejected hate.
Yeah.. my mom was telling me about her best friend, who met the most perfect Austrian guy in college (you probably know where this is going already). He was charming, funny, apparently the perfect catch and they got engaged really quick. Anyway, my mom, dad, her friend and fiancee went backpacking in Europe and stopped by the guy's parents' place to crash for a couple of days, and during dinner he came out dressed in his father's SS uniform. And just like that, the engagement was off. And the thing is, he never seemed like a white supremacist or Nazi sympathizer, because he wasn't, it was just instilled in him to be proud of his daddy's service in the war.
Also @Bobonne do you know what became of them? Like Misterbuns said it's been over a decade now and I completely forgot.
i bet he looked simply dashing, though. Hugo Boss knew a thing or two about threads.
Maybe his father did actually do good things and braved impossible odds etc.
Just cause he was in SS doesn't mean he was a wholesale Jew murderer.
|wtf japan |
I've said it before and I'll say it again: white people make the best pop music. If it weren't for all these blacks, Jews, and miscegenists, we could be listening to industrial yodelpolka right now!
Calling this dude a one-note joke is giving him too much credit. Is there such a thing as a quarter-note joke? I dunno. Hopefully he gets sick of his shtick and goes back to wherever it is he came from. /r/kotakuinaction or whatever.
oh cool never heard of them thanks poetv
